Afternoon Speakers

Key Note Speaker: Gary Johnson – 2012 Libertarian Presidential Candidate

Gary Johnson

Gary Johnson, who has been called the ‘most fiscally conservative Governor’ in the country, served two consecutive terms as  Governor of New Mexico from 1995-2003. Governor Johnson brings a distinctly business-like mentality to governing, believing that public policy decisions should be based on costs and benefits, rather than strict ideology.

Geoffrey J. Neale- National Libertarian Party Chair

Geoffrey Neale served as Chair for the Libertarian Party from 2002 to 2004 and was re-elected to Chair in May 2012. He was a member of the Libertarian National Committee for five terms and served two 2-year terms as the state chair for the Texas Libertarian Party.

In stark contrast to the top-down management of the Democratic and Republican parties, Geoff Neale ran for Chair on a promise to focus the Libertarian National Committee on the needs and wants of party members; to make operations appropriately transparent to members; and to conduct LNC meetings in accordance with the party’s bylaws.

Geoffrey Neale was the Operations Manager for the 2004 Michael Badnarik Libertarian for President campaign, and served as an officer for a 1980 California initiative to restrict the sales tax. In 1988, Neale worked with the Ron Paul Libertarian for President campaign.





Sharon Harris- President Advocates for Self Government


Sharon Harris serves as the President of the Advocates. An award-winning speaker, she also conducts our communication training seminars and administers our guest speaker program. Sharon has been active in the libertarian movement for more than 30 years, including running campaigns and running for office herself. Read Full Bio Here.


Michael Maharrey – National Communications Director The Tenth Amendment Center


Hailing from Lexington, Ky., he’s extremely proud that his home state originated the Principles of ’98 laying the groundwork for state nullification of unconstitutional acts, and he’s the author of Our Last Hope – Rediscovering the Lost Road to Liberty, a historical, philosophical and moral case for nullification.

  • Tennessee Tully

    Seeing how our current senators have shown us that they do not represent our desires, do we have any potential candidates for their office?

    • KPL in TN

      Totally agree Tully. After last night’s vote by the Tennessee Senators for a continuing resolution to end the Government Shutdown and raise the Debt Ceiling, I wrote both and asked them to resign. If they are not part of the solution they are part of the problem.

    • D Irvin

      I know of a candidate that just got on the ballot. His name is Joshua James; his website and picture and info will be on here soon. His email is joshuajames4senate@yahoo.com.
